"I just wanted you to know this has made a big difference in my life.  Using the "Tools to Change Your Emotional State", which I have posted by my desk I see things so much more objectively. I say to myself "Don't take things personally. Don't judge." It made a big difference in our office as I am not being sucked into drama. Your workshop was one of the best things I have ever done. Thank you."
Mary Fosburg, Western Michigan University

"Great session for leaders at all levels of project or functional organization. Bill guided the group through a series of reflections focused on recognizing and seizing our adult self. The anecdotes presented by Bill and additional experience-based input from participants kept the session lively and real."       Paul Mantica, PhD/PMP, Michigan State University

As adults we recognize that life is lived from the inside out. That is, our experiences are caused, not by events or the behaviors of others, but by who we are being in the face of those events and behaviors. We each create our own experience while influencing the experiences of others. We cannot control the world, but we can control how we respond to it.

From this position of strength, as individuals in an organization, community, team, or family, we can work as partners toward a common vision.
